For me i am a woman in my 50s i am a woman who likes style i know what looks nice on me. Because of my invisable illness which i cant control. I take pleasure in wearing. Nice and comfotable clothes. Age is nothing but a number you have good tips. But its nice to wear colour. Brighten up your day. My age does not mean i cant wear trendy clothes. I will not wear anything that does not make me feel comfortable and i feel confident in. Thank you for this video i find it informative.

What about needing to hide crêpe necks, flabby arms, wattled necks.
Lora Liche (14 days ago)
So ageist. I am over 50 and like many women today look act and feel 40. I wear clothing that looks good on my body. It don't matter if it's age appropriate I'm not a child. I love colour on women and I love classic colors. In the beginning you say you shouldn't flaunt yourself you last line was flaunt it. Make up your mind.

Edina Cole I have 50 and fabulous and I dress very comfortable but age-appropriate. 50 is just a number it’s all about how you feel inside and how you take care of yourself. I just posted a video for 50 and fabulous on my site please take a look at It and let me know your thoughts.

well got through the first few mins but had to stop the video as I couldnt comprehend how this "professional image consultant" has the arrogance to think she has the god given right to tell us how we should feel comfy and dress after 50!! Im sorry but I find it offensive and the clothes WELL!! my mum wouldnt even wear them granny clothes.I dont need to learn how to dress like an old lady in her 50's because this expert( and I use the term loosely) has blagged an career out of image consulting with women who have no confidence in themselves to dress as they like! I dont know what image she was trying to get together there but if i wore them here where i live id be called a bag lady!! rant over!

There is no hard and fast rule. You are right . Just be you, be fabulous and flaunt it. Just wear what makes you feel good. Most important of all - you must be comfortable in your own skin.

Just Me (8 months ago)
I'm 60 years old and I too believe I don't look it. But, if any stranger off the street were asked my age, I dare say they would answer I looked 60 or over. This lady is trying to give us information that will help us look classy and not trashy. Because we feel and think we look younger than we actually are, we wear clothes that sometimes make us look less appealing.

Rosemarie Lee (9 months ago)
While I agree with the idea that a woman over 50 needs to be careful with her fashion choices, which goes for every woman anyway, I don't agree with the selection of clothes on display. I think individuality is important, and as a woman over 50, I would never wear any of the clothes on display in the video. I like to be me, and I am fashionable, but without the need for the overly mature image these clothes present.
Ailene Phillips (9 months ago)
A sweater over anything screams out OLD. Don't wear it.
araucana1976 (9 months ago)
You have some good sugestions but I think ultimate what we women decide to wear depends greatly if we like it and feel comfortable wearing it. The magnificent spectrum of fashion is just too large to limit ourselves to just a limited variety of styles or colors and base our choices in something so insignificant as our age.
Mary Axiotis (9 months ago)
You know, I have tried to like your videos but it is difficult when assumptions are made that the women over fifty have suddenly become challenged at making decisions concerning their clothing. I think that the choices that you have held up are dull and boring. Your points about being comfortable are sound and advice that should be followed by all age groups. Don't follow trends? Why? Why not follow trends. I am almost 60 and I dare say that I would rather rip my hair out than follow your very conservative and uninspiring advice!!!!
Michelle Mcgowan (7 months ago)
Brilliant! Im so glad Mary that ive found someone on exactly the same wavelength as me! it gets me angry that people just like this woman try to preach to us what to wear etc!XX

The clothes look old fashioned wear what suits you and not go by age. Colour brightens up you face when I wear dark colours I look worn out and drawn.
ann marie carolan (1 year ago)
I could not do these. I'm too short for maxi dresses. The colour is awful. Clothes are dated and boring.....add colour ...do whatever makes you happy.

I understand if you have a professional job, but here in Florida women of all ages wear what they want to wear. To hot to care.

Ew with those ugly looks who the fuck wants get to their 50's? there ain't such thing as age in fashion.
Tamara (1 year ago)
I think the clothes you recommend are for work in an office or dressing up. They don't fit my lifestyle or size and shape. For example, to say that every 50+ woman needs a blazer and little black dress in her closet is just not accurate.
Daneen Williams (1 year ago)
omg these are ugly selections...blk & white dress is the only nice dress
JJ truth (1 year ago)
A woman over 50 cannot simply wear anything. There is a style of sophistication that should have been reached at that milestone. Its a time for jewelry stuff younger women couldn't pull off.

I know this is old but I am shocked at a lot of these comments. It makes me embarrassed for women my age. Why be rude? If you don't agree, move on.
Lora Liche (14 days ago)
Because this individual is being rude quite frankly. Ageism is rude.
Christine Newhouse (7 months ago)
Mary Ann Rezmann-Grams Not everyone is going to agree with the style..there are always going to be negative comments..all we can do is ignore and move on..God bless.

that doesn't explain anything.
Karen Brown (2 years ago)
Age is purely a number, just because you reach the number 50 doesn't mean you have to start wearing kaftans and cardigans to camouflage your body!
Nona McDade (2 years ago)
I do not know where you live nor where you have traversed however; it seems as though you have not considered some very important factors. Where do this over fifty seasoned lady live? what is her personality like? Do she walk through life as a Diva or is she embracing old fashion ideas about her age? How about her ethnicity ? In the big cities, especially New York, women over sixty are wearing bold hues with great stylish taste. Not every seasoned lady (always) wants easy breezy. Sometimes she might want a dramatic presentation to sport so, wearing all black in various textures, contrasted with the right eye and lip color, the right accessory and even a fabulous colorful hand bag can make the look work. How about those who embrace their beautiful grey locks in a youthful manner? Various shades of violet, blue, peach and many other hues can complement their grey. Clothes should be fun and attractive. They should project our feelings about ourselves at that moment. No, looking like a clown (unless that is what one is aiming for) should not be the result , but, many of today's fifty or sixty year old ladies are not trying to look how their grand-mothers looked eighty or ninety years previous; uninteresting , safe and boring.

I say wear anything that makes you look curvy and feminine. Nice colors compliments your skin tone Make sure it's well fitted. Walk and sit with good posture. You'll look beautiful.

Good grief, how about wear what you want? By the time you're 50 you aren't so worried about what people think, or at least you shouldn't be. I am in my 50s and if I want to wear a bright color I'll wear it, thanks.

I TOTALLY AGREE! I have been known to wear a bit of latex now and again or a miniskirt leather when i go out clubbing with my son or daughter or a sexy little dress and heels and still look classy .Its how you wear what your clothes not what you wear, Im 52 now and it keeps me feeling young and sexy and even they love the look on their friends faces when they say this is my mum!.xx

All Hell Breaks Loose (3 years ago)
Not all women over 50 look old there are some youthful women out there who are over 50. So really those youthful women over 50+ can wear almost anything. You also can coordinate your youth to your look. 50 should be treated young.
All Hell Breaks Loose yes I totally agree with you I think 50 can’t be fabulous. I am 50 years old and I am healthy so that makes me fabulous LOL I just posted a video for 50 and fabulous I would love for you to take a look at it most of my videos are more home Decour but I am trying to venture out into apparel. Please take a look at my video I would love for you to leave a comment subscribe and share with your friends. Because 50 is the new 40 LOL

Boring like a video from the 50s and not from 5 or 6 years ago. I hope no one is really using her advice.
YourAnjl (3 years ago)
I agree with regard to blazers, cardigans, etc.  However, the majority of summer clothes are sleeveless and those of us over 60 really want to cover both our arms and our legs.  Or perhaps I should say I do.  I am skinny--it's the awful skin I don't want to show!

You can be trained as professional image consultant but let me tell you .... I personally will never wear the kind of clothes that you advise. I would feel to wear the clothes of my grandmother and I am a 50 years. You think you know everything about women 50 years but remember, you do not have all the same tastes. I prefer to dress conservatively but still keep a touch of youth and not give the impression that I'm an old tasteless.

Her dress is pulling in the front it doesn't fit well.  Throwing the clothes in a pie wow that's unprofessional.  Ok, yeah well no I do agree with black dress hate the blazer hate the cardigan, like the empire top.  How old is this?
Annie Williams (1 year ago)
Carrie Lonsdale that stuff looks outdated to me and I'm older than 50 and I would not wear it in all honesty my mother wouldn't she was a very stylish woman maybe at a funeral or something that Blazer

I'm irritated. My brother resides on the floor above me and he just grew great with ladies. He found the Master Attraction website (Take a look in Google) by Jake Ayres. Now I hear him bringing ladies back. He's consistently bringing sexy girls back and I can't help but hear it. It's gross. If only he had not found that site. I'm jealous!
Azazel (5 years ago)
??are you 13th - you dressed my daughter's dress :((hahaha...I think you are 60,so, leave this dress for your granddaughter.. I know it's sounds impolite, but is the truth, isn't it?
Nani Castillo (5 years ago)
Shit. I'm terribly jealous of my cousin currently. He has actually been alone always and forever. Nonetheless, he got a swimwear model to inform him she is deeply in love with with him in under a month. Just how is that possible? He mentioned he used the Cupid Love System (Google it!) I wish someone amazing told me that... I cannot remember ever previously seeing him so positive. Sort of makes me feel bad.

Zendragoness94 (5 years ago)
Sorry but it's kinda ridiculous to try to tell people in this day and time they should dress this way or that. I mean, if you are wearing things that make you look like a street walker, that's one thing but most of us dress really well already. I buy from the jr's department sometimes myself (jeans) and I'm 53. I like the fit of the jeans and styles there. I rarely wear a blazer here in Phoenix...People can dress the way they want, we're not all robots.. vive la différence.

So for me, age is just a number. It does not define. Secondly, we are all getting older, even those in their 20s. With that said, when I was younger, I was one of the women who questioned why an older woman was wearing clothing "too young" for her. Now that I am older, I see things differently and wear clothes that are comfortable and look good on me, that includes wearing a pair of quality looking skinny jeans. The only clothes pretty much off limits for me are mini skirts because my legs are not as in good shape when I was younger and jeans that are ripped. However, if an older woman wants to wear those items and she feels comfortable in them, then do you baby!
